The nature of the velocity distribution of a driven granular gas, though well studied, is unknown as to whether it is universal or not, and, if universal, what it is. We determine the tails of the steady state velocity distribution of a driven inelastic Maxwell gas, which is a simple model of a granular gas where the rate of collision between particles is independent of the separation as well as the relative velocity. We show that the steady state velocity distribution is nonuniversal and…

Asymptotic behavior of the velocity distribution of driven inelastic one-component granular gases: exact results

We determine the asymptotic behavior of the tails of the steady state velocity distribution of a driven granular gas comprising of particles having a single component scalar velocity. A pair of

Asymptotic velocity distribution of a driven one dimensional binary granular Maxwell gas

We consider the steady states of a driven inelastic Maxwell gas consisting of two types of particles with scalar velocities. Motivated by experiments on bilayers where only one layer is driven, we

Hydrodynamics of granular particles on a line.

TLDR
The main prediction from hydrodynamics, when finite-size corrections are neglected, is the existence of a steady "uniform longitudinal flow" (ULF), with the granular temperature and the velocity gradient both uniform and directly related.

Producing suprathermal tails in the stationary velocity distribution

Mpemba effect in driven granular Maxwell gases.

TLDR
The inelastic driven Maxwell gas, a simplified model for a granular gas, is considered, where the rate of collision is assumed to be independent of the relative velocity, and the Mpemba effect is determined, wherein the system at higher temperature relaxes to a final steady state at an exponentially faster rate leading to smaller equilibration time.

State-dependent driving: a route to non-equilibrium stationary states

We study three different experiments that involve dry friction and periodic driving, and which employ both single- and many-particle systems. These experimental set-ups, besides providing a

State-dependent driving: A new route to non-equilibrium steady states

While studying systems driven out of equilibrium, one usually employs a drive that is not directly coupled to the degrees of freedom of the system. In contrast to such a case, we here unveil a

Asymptotic Behavior of the Velocity Distribution of Driven Inelastic Gas with Scalar Velocities: Analytical Results

We determine the asymptotic behavior of the tails of the steady state velocity distribution of a homogeneously driven granular gas comprising of particles having a scalar velocity. A pair of
